, obama and romney both claim that they were and still are for a balanced budget. reality. the obama budget this year was $1 trillion in deficits. the paul ryan budget which passed the u.s. house was $600 billion in deficit. i have the courage to submit a balanced budget if i'm elected president right after i'm inaugurated. secondly, i am for jobs and america for american citizens first, and the only candidate that has called for a near complete moritorium on green card admissions to the united states until unemployment is under 5%. it makes no sense to bring in so many foreign workers when our unemployment is so high in this country.

has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look at where the storm is spread. it's now in ohio and virginia. these are places where the obama campaign had counted on early voting and they made a big effort on that. the president himself cashed the ballot early first time in u.s. history way to encourage others. democrats thought that might be advantageous for them. more republicans than democrats who voted early. again i think that's probably a watch -- wash. one thing it might effect things as we resume the campaign. tomorrow is going to be a half and half day by the end of the week we will be back to campaigning. when you have this emergency and you have this tragedy and latest effects of the tragedy are going to go right through election day. not a one day deal. there is imp
: clinton was in minnesota earlier in the week, where the romney campaign recently announced a new ad buy. it's a place both sides had earlier assumed would belong to the democrats. the obama camp countered with a new ad featuring the endorsement of former secretary of state colin powell, ran it there and in nine other states. >> i think we ought to keep on the track that we're on. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> woodruff: but the romney campaign also began airing a spanish-language ad in florida tying obama to latin american dictators hugo chavez and fidel castro. >> we are amera's men. >> woodruff: and american future fund, a super pac supporting romney is running ads targeting women in michigan and pennsylvania, states considered safely democratic. as you can see on the "newshour's" vote 2012 map center" there are seven states currently considered by the associated press to be true toss ups: nevada, colorado, iowa, ohio, virginia, florida and new hampshire. it shows each candidate's quickest potential path to 270 electoral votes. including one scenario giving preside
to shave my mustache. >> there is evidence to back up both and the romney campaign believes momentum. our own history has shown candidates, there are challengers, and the whole thing happens and the whole thing won't move. is that what we're seeing or is this a desperate attempt to what's going on? >> chuck, look at the poll numbers. there is serious tightening in these states, the lean democratic column for quite a while right now. but it is important to note that president obama actually leads still in all of them and, in fact, the margins we're often seeing look close to what john kerry carried those states in 2004 versus 2008. but overall this is something -- this is the recognition the power the super pacs are playing. the pro-romney restore in play. other super pacs going in there and that's opened up things a little bit. the biggest question, why didn't we see these moves months ago? >> let me ask you something, are you concerned -- look, the fact of the matter is and i've done some of the math, it is possible and it's not like an out there scenario, that mitt romney could win the
of the campaign. you know they both of them have been not totally sole on the notion that romney was going to win for most of the time. privately both -- >> is that what's happening? >> i think both of them are looking, to some extent, what comes next. i'm not saying they don't want governor romney to win this election but both skap ceptical his chances for a year and a half. governor christie, not taking anything away from -- i think he was genuinely star struck to be on marine one, but he needs to get re-elected. he has a tough re-election battle. you can't be on the wrong side of president obama in the disaster situation if you're going to win re-election in a blue state in a year from now when he has to run again. >> which, by the way -- >> the only way he can run in 2016 if is he wins again. politics are there. governor bush's politics are different. trying to get himself back into play after having been out for a long time, he's going to be a different hoe down for him and a different way to deal with republican base than the one that chris christie is in. different political paths. >> if m
're both back at it. mitt romney, went into it and brought things back where they should be. they should be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be contested in terms of the popular vote. he will take the electoral. >> dana: maybe in wisconsin. what do you think? >> greg: i predict a 90-43 obama victory. that's how well the obama campaign gets out the vote. there will be undocumented workers, space at it lens, local mannequins. the real winner is american people be
. >> both democrats and republicans don't like it. and in my opinion, if mitt romney were to win the popular vote and barack obama were to win the electoral college vote, i don't think the electoral college would be disbanded. it would blow up in a fiery ball because both parties would have been lost out with the electoral college in the course of 12 years. >> what will they do? >> well, there would have to be a constitutional amendment. there's a plan to do an end run around the constitution something called the national popular vote plan and i don't want to take too long to explain i want but it's a way for states, interstate compact and a bunch of states have agreed to it saying that they will cast their electoral votes for the winner of the national popular vote regardless of how their state votes if enough states agree to this to equal the number of 270. i know it's confusing. if you have a dvr rewind it. it makes sense. >> the bottom line is how can you win the popular vote and still not be president of the united states? >> we're the only democracy on earth that uses this system and d
in years past, in this crucial battleground state for both presidential candidates. >> hello, ohio! >> god bless io. >> reporter: president oba and mitt romney's campaigns camped outally here. and each candidate has made multicity tours of the state just this week. winning ohio is critical for both. ecause of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> nobepublican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple timesca has a democrat done so. to clearly it anit important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an
between comforting and campaigning. on wednesday both president obama and governor mitt romney urged the country to try and come together. >> we're going to have a lot of work to do. i don't want anybody to feel that somehow this is all going to get cleaned up overnight. but what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> we also have full hearts because we know our fellow americans in some parts of our country are struggling through tough times with the hurricane that hit the atlantic coast. when there are challenges we come together and help one another and that help is needed now. >> both men head back out on the campaign trail today. the campaign trail. a poll shows mr. obama leading. mr. obama leading romney among aceely voters. in september that poll found the and new je critics tied. new jersey's governor is facing christi criticism from other hepublicans. theydnesday we saw christie join the president on his helicopter. stor aboen to what he said about i
is critical for both. but because of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> no republican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple times has a democrat done so. to clearly it is an important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a
policy for the eurasia group. he says the numbers have something in them for both campaigns: president obama can claim the economy is growing, but governor romney can claim it's not growing fast enough. >> voters have basically drawn their conclusions about the economy already so, you know, the impact that a g.d.p. number can have or that the final jobs report on the friday before the election is going to have is won only at the margins. now, this election is close enough that the margins matter. >> reporter: as west mentioned, the last unemployment before the vote comes out a week from today. surprise in either direction could influence the outcome of the election. >> pelley: and anthony, that election is now officially the most expensive in u.s. history. it just passed that milestone. the latest numbers show the presidential campaigns and the super pacs that back them have now raised more than $2 billion. now, some other key numbers in the race. 11 is the number of days before the election. five is the number of points separating the candidates in the latest gallup poll. it shows gov
. whatever the numbers show it will serve more as ammunition for both president obama and mitt romney in their final push before tuesday's big election. political experts say at this point, it's unlikely these numbers will sway voters. today's report will be from october. economists predict a slight gain in jobs from last month. the september report shows unemployment dropped to 7.8%. that was the first dip below 8 since the president took office. today both candidates are plunging into rapid campaign pace. president obama has three events in the battleground state of ohio, mitt romney has two. a lot of analysts say the buckeye state could be the deciding state in the electoral vote. >> today, because of the resilience of the american people, our businesses have created over 5 million new jobs. [ applause and cheers ] >> the american auto industry is back on top. [ applause and cheers ] >> reporter: yesterday the president got back on the campaign trail after overseeing the government's response to superstorm sandy on the east coast. >> middle income people in america have really been
weekend of the presidential race and both campaigns will blitz battleground states. president obama and challenger mitt romney are competing for votes. they spent part of their schedules in the battleground state of ohio. both are hoping 11th hour stops will change sway votes which could make or break a bid for the white house. it takes 270 electoral votes to win it all. experts suggest that both candidates are trying to increase their chances of winning on tuesday. >> if the president wins florida, the election is over. ohio, in many respects, is the pivotal state. can romney find path towards the presidency without ohio? i would say that, with wisconsin in play, and that being the home state advantage for ryan, that wisconsin gives an alternative. >> and so both campaigns are expected to crisscross each other this weekend and other swing states like new hampshire, iowa and virginia. >>> maryland voters turned out in record numbers on the final day of early voting. 90,000 voters cast their ballots. the numbers have been huge, eve within the disruption of hurricane sandy. here's tha
and then we'll hear the president speak. both mitt romney and obama, he is going to start in ohio today, and spending the day in ohio. romney will go to wisconsin first and then head to ohio. he'll be getting a lot of love over the weekend. what is interesting is both candidates have op-eds appearing on cnn.com today. mitt romney's a very routine, it seems to reiterate all of the same stuff. that he will create 12 million new jobs -- 12 million jobs will be created anyway. more of the same. and he has now taken on the idea that he is going to create real change. i can't believe it's not change. he has got real change compared to the president's change. >> stephanie: i thought he was going to call it of course i never said detroit should go bankrupt. >> sure. the president starts out by talking about how we have come together as a nation after this hurricane, and how we have to continue to where we were before. we'll be right back. day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv
areas of help. they've been to the point of contact for everybody. both campaigns, the romney and obama campaign, have been directing people to the red cross website to help. i want to give you also a readout on the call that the president had about two hours ago with governors and mayors in the affected areas. a couple things came out of it. in the official read from the white house they don't say which states were offering help to the states that needed it the most, but i can tell you new york and new jersey are the ones that are feeling overwhelmed. they are looking for more help and assistance. all of the other governors in all of the other states surrounding connecticut, massachusetts, maryland, virginia, pennsylvania, you name it all on the call were offering assistance and help to new york and new jersey. it sort of narrows it down. i know there's questions how hard hit is connecticut and pennsylvania. they're all -- they're all in tough shape, but all of those governors expressed optimism they can handle this disaster relief. new york and new jersey, very overwhelmed now looking
. with next tuesday's outcome very much in doubt, both sides tried out their final pitches to voters in key battleground states. >> mitt romney went to virginia, a swing state where the race is tight and made his closing argument. >> if the president were to be reelected, you will see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, just like we have seen over the last four years. >> his new ad is positive. >> but the former governor's path to a win looks difficult. he is down by six points in iowa and closer in new hampshire and wisconsin. >> that is where air force one when today -- green bay. president obama back on the trail after suspending campaign for hurricane sandy. >> we know what things look like and what the government is -- with the governor is softener -- with the governor is offering is not change. leaving millions without health insurance isn't change. >> his new ad features: paul. >> the president saved the auto industry and the actions he had -- he is taking -- he has taken protecting us from terrorism have been solid. >> the ads are an acknowledgement that go
